A few seeds can also be added to a peppermill with other peppercorns for a fragrant table seasoning. The seeds can easily be ground in a mortar & pestle to release their full aromas and flavors. Soaking the seeds first (before grinding) in cold water for a few minutes will help revive their aromas, or toasting them is another way of releasing their sweet nutty flavors.
